well, damage is probably done. how can i check the resolution?
i tried to increase it by creating huge ppm and tif files, but
then that's really absurd since there can only be just so much
data per image. i _could_ try xv and jpeg and smoothing image to
refine, but too much hassle.
(i used gocr -m 130 and "saw" the glyphs it (presumably) saw.
seemed pretty much okay to my eyes. but then i'm not a computer
program. [MAYBE :)]
